Overview

Even vampires need a vacation. But Decker Argeneau's ends abruptly when he's asked to help hunt the group of rogue vampires targeting mortals -- one that might include a defector in his own family. Before he can worry about that, though, he's got to rescue the latest victim. It's all part of the job, including taking a bullet for a beautiful doctor.

Dr. Danielle McGill doesn't know if she can trust the man who just saved her life. There are too many questions, such as what is the secret organization he says he's part of, and why do his wounds hardly bleed? However, with her sister in the hands of some dangerous men, she doesn't have much choice but to trust him.

Except now Decker's talking about life mates and awakening a passion that's taking Dani beyond anything she's ever known. Being undead may not be half-bad...especially if it means spending forever with a man who would love her with his mind, body, and immortal soul.

Good To Know

1.) I started The Deed (my first romantic comedy and the first book to be published) a year after my mother's death. I was very close to my mother and the year following her death was about the most miserable time imaginable. But then I decided I was tired of being down and unhappy, and looked around for something to lift my spirits and make me laugh. When I couldn't find anything, I decided to sit down and write my own. It worked! Emmalene and Amaury's antics in The The Deed had me chuckling as I wrote.
2.) I met my husband in New York in July 2003. I was there because of the RWA conference and he was there on vacation. The first day there we kept running into each other and chatting in front of the hotel, and then he asked to join our group (it was very brave of him. He was the lone male amongst six or seven women, lol). He's a Brit and I'm Canadian and the first two months of our relationship were conducted by phone as well as over the internet. Our first date was a week in New York in September, followed by three weeks in England. He then came to Canada in both November and December, the first time to propose and the second time for Christmas with my family and then to take me back to England with him for New Years. I lived in Northern England for two years. We married in New York and now live in Canada.
3.) I was writing about my husband before I met him. Single White Vampire came out in September 2003 and I took a copy with me to England when I went for the three weeks. I walked into my now-hubby's house to find at least six months worth of mail unopened and stacked up on a shelf inside the front door. When I stopped dead, eyes going wide with shock and asked "My God. That's mail. You don't open your mail?" He looked embarrassed and muttered some explanation about bills automatically being paid by the bank so no need to open those and everything else was unsolicited and he couldn't be bothered. When I burst out laughing, he started to frown and said "What?" My response was to dig out the copy of Single White Vampire and hand it over with the suggestion he read it. The mail thing wasn't the only similarity he had to Lucern Argeneau. There are many more and when he sat down to read the book, he kept stopping and turning a rather startled and even suspicious gaze my way and muttering that this sounded familiar" or that did. I had to point out that it really was coincidence, that I had written that story at least nine months before meeting him. LOL.

Read an Excerpt

The Immortal Hunter

Chapter One

"Where the hell is he going?" Decker muttered under his breath as he steered the SUV down the rutted dirt road to follow the white van ahead.

"Hell if I know," Justin Bricker answered.

Decker glanced briefly to the younger immortal, his temporary partner for this hunt, but didn't bother explaining that he'd been talking to himself. He returned his concentration to the road, squinting in an effort to see where he was going. While their kind could see in the dark better than mortals, even he was straining in the almost complete absence of light out here. It was a starless night, and Decker had turned off the headlights several miles back to prevent being spotted by Nicholas. The enforcer SUVs had several modifications; an absence of driving lights that came on every time the vehicle was started was just one of them.

"I didn't expect it to be this easy to track him down," Justin said suddenly.

Decker grunted, surprised by it himself. Nicholas Argeneau had been rogue for a good fifty years, during which time no one had even caught sight of the man. For it to have taken a mere day of showing his picture around to pick up his trail seemed too easy. Way too easy. It made Decker suspicious and wary. Why hadn't Nicholas erased the memories of the mortals he'd encountered? He must have done that in the past to have remained off the radar, and yet suddenly he wasn't doing so. Instead he appeared to have left a trail as clear as radioactive green cookie crumbs.

Justin cursed beside him and grabbed for the dashboard as the dirt lane came to an end and they followed the van off-road, bouncingover tall grass and bushes.

"Maybe he's tired of running," Justin suggested suddenly through gritted teeth, no doubt to keep from biting off his tongue as they jolted over the uneven trail. "Maybe he wants to be caught."

Decker didn't respond. He didn't for a minute think Nicholas was giving up, and he didn't know what was going on, but Justin Bricker's constant need to talk was beginning to drive him crazy. He had no idea how Mortimer, Justin's usual partner, had taken it all these years.

"He's stopping."

"I can see that," Decker muttered between his teeth, steering the SUV to the side of the road. He parked as far into the woods as he dared without risking getting stuck. Hoping it was far enough that their prey wouldn't notice them, he then turned off the engine and ordered, "Watch him."

Leaving the keys in the ignition to save time should Nicholas notice them and try to get away in the van, Decker crawled over the seat and all the way to the back of the SUV where the blood and weapons were. He moved to the cooler first, retrieving a ­couple of bags of blood and tossing one over the seats into Justin's lap. "Drink up. You'll need your strength."

"I gather you don't think he's going to give up when he sees us, then?" Justin asked dryly and then slapped the bag to his mouth.

Decker snorted at the very suggestion. He waited for his own canine teeth to drop down, and slapped a bag of blood to the fangs with one hand as he reached with the other to unlock and flip open the nearest weapons case. His eyes slid over the guns inside. While you weren't likely to kill an immortal with a gun, you could slow him down and even temporarily incapacitate him . . . especially using bullets that were coated with the tranquilizer Bastien's techie boys had developed.

"He's getting out of the van," Justin announced.

Decker glanced forward to see that Justin had already drained his bag and was shoving it in the small bag at his feet, one filled with fast-food wrappers. The man liked to eat as much as he liked to talk, Decker had noticed. Shaking his head, he glanced past him to peer out the front windshield, but couldn't see much over the seats. Pulling his own now-empty bag from his teeth, he asked, "What's he doing?"

"Walking around to the back of the van . . . opening the door . . . he's digging around inside, getting something—I think he's getting out weapons." Justin glanced back, worry on his face as he asked, "Do you think he spotted us?"

Decker's mouth tightened. He set aside the empty bag and turned back to the case before him. "Come pick your weapons."

"Should we call Lucian or Mortimer?" Justin asked as he headed back to join him. Decker considered the question as he chose two guns and a box of coated bullets. Lucian had sent them north as a mere precaution. He'd also sent Mortimer and Sam west for the same reason, but he and his life mate, Leigh, were searching the Haliburton area where Nicholas had actually been seen by Grant. Decker suspected his uncle had expected to find him there, and hoped to be the one to get to him first. It meant both ­couples were far enough away that they weren't going to be of any use at this point. He shook his head. "It would take at least an hour, possibly two for either of them to get here. We're on our own."

Justin nodded slowly, and then transformed from the good-natured, slightly mischievous sidekick he usually acted, to the hunter he was. His shoulders straightened and his expression became grim as he began to select weapons from the case.

Unwilling to risk Nicholas creeping up on them while they were distracted, Decker took his weapons and the box of bullets and made his way up front to the driver's seat. A glance showed that Nicholas now had a quiver full of arrows and a crossbow slung over his back, but was still digging around in the back of the van. Looking for more weapons, Decker supposed, and kept an eye on him as he loaded his guns. Nicholas was still busy in the back of the van when Justin rejoined him in the front of the SUV.

    The latest Rogue Hunter romantic urban fantasy is an exhilarating thriller

    In Canada rogue vampires kidnaps sisters Dani and Stephanie McGill and. Vampire Decker Argeneau Pimms is called back from R&R to mount a rescue of two the mortals. He extracts Danielle successfully, but fails to get her sibling from one of the scoundrels who escaped with her. To his shock he knows Dani is his life mate.

    Dani is attracted to the strange hero, but distrusts him as too much about him remains murky. Besides she is worried about Stephanie. Decker will do whatever it takes to rescue Stephanie from the-fanger-less vampire, a sub-species thought extinct centuries ago, while also keeping his Dani safe

    The latest Rogue Hunter romantic urban fantasy (see THE ROGUE HUNTER and BITE ME IF YOU CAN) is an exhilarating thriller enhanced by the hero rescuing his life mate but unable to protect her sister from being snatched. The lead couple is a wonderful pairing as saving Stephanie supersedes their love. Fans will enjoy this fine tale summed up nicely by Decker who struggles with persuading Dani they are mates and with rescuing her sister while he ponders what to tell his future in-laws (not as simple as meeting the Fockers and Byrnes or even Falk-Arkin's The In-Laws).

    Great Twists

    This is #11 in the Argeneau Series. Decker is after a rogue vampire. But there's more out there than he and the other enforcers were expecting... And Decker meets his lifemate. She has no desire to be turned.... But, well... you will have to read this book to see how this all works out and discover a new kind of "vampire"!

    LOVE IT!

    I love this book! Actually I love the entire Argeneau Vampire Series. Once you pick up one book you won't be able to put it down until you've completely read all 12 that is out. Way better than Twilight too! This series is more for adults. It will have you on the edge of your seat, just flipping through page after page, wanting to know what will happen next. This book is funny, witty, and sexy! I would completely recommend reading this book. And the great thing about this series is you can pick up any book and start reading without getting lost. You can read them in no particular order and still know what is going on. I can't wait for the next 2 books to come out this year!

    Never a Let Down

    I enjoyed the book.. I have noticed she is tying the charcters together more which I am liking. I think that the next book in the series will just fuel the fire.. I like that the characters are some what all related or have some connection to one another. Main characters that is. She has also brought the Twins into a little scene in this book.. Gotta love the Twins.. :) Bring on the next one..

    EXCELLENT ESCAPISM FROM A MASTER WRITER

    I FIND THAT LYNSAY SANDS DOES A TERRIFFIC JOB OF TAKING THE READER OUT OF THE EVERYDAY HUMDRUM LIFE AND CREATING A COMPLETE FAMILY OF VAMPIRES WHO HAVE MORE HUMANITY THAN SOME HUMANS. THIS IS AN EXCELLENT ESCAPE AND AN ENTIRELY BELIEVEABLE WORLD OF VAMPIRES. I HAVE READ ALL OF THE ARGENEAU SERIES AND HOPE SHE CONTINUES IT. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS BOOK!!!---OR ANY OF THE OTHER ARGENEAU SERIES.

    good

    i got introduced to decker first from the book that came before this one in the hunter series, tge rouge hunter. i think that he and dr. dani are really cute together. i like at first how his is like all serious and then as he falls in love with dani begins to lighten up a bit. i loved the action that is also present in the book as well. it keeps you on your toes and has you guessing till the very end on who is bad and who is good.
    because all the while, when decker and dani are falling in love, they are looking for her sister and his rouge cousin that may be bad...
    i really liked the story over all and would suggest it to anyone. it was a quick read that i really enjoyed!!
